Representing fifty-one of the fifty
two white schools of Pickens county
189 teachers registered for the cotunt
ty teachers' in'stitute which camne t(
at close Saturday after it highly sue
cessful three-day session in Pickens
The splendid record Pickens counts
made of going from last to first plack
in the matter of illiterecv within ter
years, was one of the outstandingJ
facts brought out at the institute un1
aill present showed a keen determina
tion to keep Pickens there. 'I'his
L county, alcclding to the United
States census of 1920, had an illit.
(acy percentaige of only 10.7, beingi
the lowest of any County in the Pal
motto State. and F. V. Clayton, coun
ty superintendent of education, struck
the keynote of the meeting when he
atated that it was to furthur lower
that percentage of illitercy thht the
teachers of the county had been call
From an inspiration standpoint, as
welll us otherwise, it is believed that
the institute will be of untold value
to the educational system of the coun
ty. With the exception of the Clem
son-C.alhoun school, every white school
in the county was represented.
The programti for the opening day
consisted (1 a discussion of history by
Prof. T. E. Hubbell, of Furman Uni
versity; primary reading by Miss
Minnie Mc1"eatl ef- Withrop College;

nes(ay and Ththrsday nights to large
ailiences. An informal reception was
given the teachers at the Masonic
Temple, delightful refreshments being
s5erved during the evening.
The program for l'riday consisted
of liseuw-sions by the following: Miss
1cFent; Prof. II. C. Davis of the
University of South ('arolina; .and
